Barcode Reader Integration with Application

0
Hi All,   I have requirement where user will read the barcode using Barcode Reader(for Example, if you go to any supermartket, they will use barcode reader then the price of the product will be visible in the application) and the details of the barcode should be visible in the application(Note: Barcode generated in the application already, details has to get from the database and show it in the page). I want to know how to integrate the Barcode reader with my application.  Thanks in advance.

Scanner works like input device. The scanner should put the value directly to input field.

The barcode reader we used worked like a keyboard. When the trigger was pulled the code was read and returned as a sequence of key presses. We just used a standard text input widget and the code appeared as if someone was typing it very very quickly.

Basically: download the barcode scanner app from the AppStore and follow their documentation. It does make a difference if your app is a Hybrid mobile web application or a Native mobile application. Take the barcode-scanner.

For creation of barcodes for use during testing you can use https://mydemoversion8-sandbox.mxapps.io/p/barcode
